Roberto Revilla, working with his wife Carolina, provides luxury yet accessible custom tailoring services nationally and internationally from his premises not far from London’s Saville Row. As well as tailoring, Roberto also retails a range of high quality accessories online.
In response to a growing global client base and a desire to position the company alongside the “giants of luxury tailoring” such as Tom Ford, Armani, Canali and Zegna, Roberto worked with Friends to develop a new brand identity. Influenced by established fashion brands and global trends, Roberto’s own likes and dislikes, and unusually, the feedback of 4o of his clients, Friends delivered a solution that reflects a philosophy of accessible luxury, high standards, personal service and material craft delivered through logotype, monogram, stationery, stitched labels, suit bags and website design.
Vitenparken is a science centre committed to facilitating and improving the dialogue between the bioscience research community and the general public. The centre contains an exhibit hall, cafe, dairy museum and meeting facilities set within the Campus Ås grounds of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. As well as the science centre these grounds are home to over a 1000 scientists, a university with eight departments and 4500 students, and a number of parks.
Formerly the Norwegian Agriculture Museum, Vitenparken commissioned design studio Bielke+Yang to help them transition from museum to science centre through the creation of a new brand identity that included naming, logo, print and website design. By appropriating the practical aesthetic of science (sans-serif typography, black ink and white paper), and juxtaposing this alongside the bright contemporary energy of MVM‘s illustrative work, Bielke+Yang’s solution establishes a common yet compelling scientific accessibility.
BVD have recently completed their brand identity work for Nina Jobs, a Swedish industrial designer working within the fields of art direction, product and furniture design for companies such as Ikea, Uniqlo and MoMa New York. Based around a responsive website that balances identity and content with large product images set against a white background, as well as a good quality business card that mixes pink board with a debossed black ink, and a logotype built from the lowercase geometric sans-serif characters of Futura, BVD‘s solution is bold yet feminine, efficient yet accessible.
Collective is a contemporary visual arts organisation founded in 1984 to help new and emerging artists exhibit their work in Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh. The organisation delivers a diverse programme of new exhibitions and commissions, and is described as being “fundamental to the cultural vitality of the country”.

Elvine is Swedish fashion brand, known for their combination of “good design and smart functionality”, with over 700 retailers throughout Europe.

Slåke is a small furniture manufacturer, located in Norway’s Hjelmeland, with a heritage that dates back to 1938. Although it produces a variety of contemporary pieces it is also known throughout Scandinavia for making jærstol, a traditional, high quality, wood and reed chair.
As part of its 75th anniversary Slåke commissioned Ghost to develop a new brand identity—which went on to include logotype, stationery, print and website design—that would reflect its continued commitment to the creation of new classics, influenced by the ‘Nordic design language’, and crafted by its team of ‘young, innovative designers’, and to safeguard its heritage whilst looking to the future.
